Are you sure? Do you have to lock your doors, your valuables, your car, your locker, hope the economy does well, hope people in deeper scarcity around the world aren't trying to flood into the country, hope you aren't mugged, hope that any oppressive government (made more powerful by scarcity among the people) won't undermine our liberties, hope that people in poverty and ignorance don't vote against their own interests... and in turn against yours?Scarcity doesn't rule over me, it just determines the cost of things I may or may not decide to purchase.
We're a world ruled by scarcity.
Countries invade other countries for oil.
They'll never invade for sunshine or wind which exist in massive abundance everywhere.
So, so many examples. Let me know if you'd like more.
They will though (not literally). It might sound like a far future dream, that's because people cannot fathom exponential growth and advancement. Technology is accelerating and will ramp up beyond your wildest dreams, the same as computers the size of a room and costing many millions of dollars have shrunk to tiny handheld gadgets so cheap over half the world has them.Personal needs rarely grow on a tree in your back yard.
It's happening with a whole lot of technologies. Look up converging technologies + exponential + digitization.
Also compare the costs of the human genome project about 20 years ago to the costs of such genetic efforts now.
Actions speak louder than words. If you believed that, wouldn't you already be dead?People are not fully free until death.
Who says we need misery and scarcity in order to compete? We'd be more free than ever, free to explore, grow with family, play sports, hike the highest mountains, whatever fits your fancy.Humans are competitive by nature. If you breed that out of us, we will die as a species.
Hmm, by my own logic, that will free us all. LOL.
Sounds like Stockholm syndrome to want to cling onto a world of scarcity. Yet actions speak louder than words... are you sure you'd say "no thanks" if you were offered a life free of work that you had to do for survival? (Instead of work you do because you created and love it)
